The Spain women's national basketball team represents Spain in international basketball competitions for women. The team has participated in the FIBA World Championship for Women since 1994. It has won one Olympic medal (a silver in 2016) and two World Championship medals.

History[edit]

After winning the EuroBasket 1993 Women, in 1994 the female selection of the Spanish team qualified for the FIBA World Championship for Women for the first time. Since then, the team has qualified for every World Championship. Overall, Spain finished 8th in Australia, and two consecutive 5th in Germany and China, and 8th in Brazil 2006. These results are quite commendable, considering that Spain has only competed with the world elite for 12 years. The female section of the Spanish team is ranked No. 3 in the ranking of FIBA,[1] achieving bronze and silver medals in the 2010 and 2014 Championships respectively.

At the EuroBasket Women, the Spanish selection won gold in 1993 and 2013, won silver in 2007 and bronze medals in 2001, 2003 and 2005, 2009, 2015.

At the Mediterranean Games, Spain won gold in 1991, and bronze in 1993, 2001 and 2005.
